NuGBalls, the deployable sensor network to map radiological or chemical contaminated areas in real-time

DescriptionNuGBalls allow fast and remote monitoring and real-time mapping of hostile / access constrained environments. NuGBalls are tough autonomous sensors that can be deployed easily on the field using drones or manually. NuGBalls integrate wireless communications, geo-localization, radiological and chemical sensors. Individual NuGBalls send measurement updates regularly to trigger alerts in case of a threat – multiple NuGBalls form a wireless communication network, allowing remote characterization of large areas. The NuGBall system includes data management software to quickly localize and assess threats in real time, minimizing risks to emergency responders or military personnel in the field.


COGNYTE, anciennement Verint

DescriptionBLINK is the world’s first cryptocurrency de-anonymization solution. BLINK's unique algorithms associate illicit activities on the Blockchain with the real-life identities of the actors behind them. BLINK’s innovative approach combines blockchain analysis and open-source intelligence with additional sources and advanced techniques to unmask illicit cryptocurrency transaction makers. With BLINK, law enforcement and security agencies, financial investigators, and tax and customs authorities can link suspects to illicit crypto activity to detect, neutralize, and prevent diverse crimes, such as money laundering, drug trafficking, tax evasion, terror funding, and more.

Drone & anti-drone systems, robotics


Description: Loki Mk2 is the world’s first purpose built tactical sUAS. Designed and built in conjunction with several of the worlds top counter terror units, LOKI Mk2 is intended for close quarter, indoor and outdoor tactical scouting missions, and features a highly sensitive Night-Day + IR sensor camera giving it the ability to fly and see in complete darkness. It provides police officers and military personnel with immediate capabilities to detect, reduce and gather crucial intelligence of threats before entering complex terrain such as dense urban areas, confined spaces and underground passages.

Individual equipment / first responder protection

Innovative ballistic protection

DescriptionPangolin's engineers produced tailless spheroids using a traditional process and dedicated tools. By developing this flexible application, engineers from the company Pangolin Defense developed specific flexible ballistic composites made with high-grade ceramic tiles mosaics and high-quality ballistic fibers from the best suppliers to lower the weight and provide the best quality gears for all types of morphology (especially women) and provide comfort. This product strengths are: Flexibility: unrivalled comfort for wearers, especially women and ease of application for vehicle protection / Lightweight / Low-cost / Environmentally-friendly: use of glass instead of ceramics.

Orion 2

DescriptionThe Orion 2 Tethered UAS meets the needs of aerial surveillance and persistent telecommunications for civilian (law enforcement, public safety...) or military (perimeter protection, tactical telecommunications...) applications. Capable of reaching an altitude of 100 meters, and equipped with a gyrostabilized day/night camera with X30 optical zoom, Orion can detect and track a person over kilometers. Its micro-tether supplies it with continuous power and guarantees secure high-speed data transfer. With its IP54 rating, Orion 2 includes multiple redundancies and emergency procedures allowing the operator to focus on his mission and the data received, while reducing the risk of human error.
